Regents approve
four agenda items

University Provost Martha Pollack recommends James Hilton to assume
the role of Dean of Libraries at the Board of Regent's meeting.
Hilton named
Dean of Libraries

Former interim
librarian to continue
digitization process
Daily Staff Reporter
DEARBORN - The University's
Board of Regents convened
Thursday at the University's
Dearborn campus to review a
selection of infrastructure and
personnel changes. Among these
items was the appointment of
information prof. James L. Hilton
as the dean of libraries
As vice president and chief infor-
mation officer of the University of
Virginia, Hilton continued to serve
roles atthe Universitythat included
special assistant to the provost for
media rights, associate provost for
academic information and instruc-
tional technology affairs and inter-
im University librarian. Hilton has
signed on to a five-year agreement.
University Spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald said Hilton's previous
involvements with the creation of
HathiTrust and other University
library endeavors made him a good
fit to administer to the libraries.
"It's something that he is deep-
ly involved in," Fitzgerald said.
"Everyone seems confident that he
was the right person to continue to
lead the library."
The University Library is cur-
rently undergoing massive chang-
es, as hardcopies of texts are being
digitized and archived. Hilton said
in a University press release that he
would continue to foster this tran-
sition through his role.

"I am thrilled to be returning to
U-M at a critical time in the evolu-
tion of the University library," Hil-
ton said in the release. "Michigan is
a leader in digital information and I
am honored to join the team."
University Provost Martha Pol-
lack recommended Hilton to the
position and reaffirmed that Hilton's
commitment to the libraries would
be crucial to their development.
"As dean of libraries and uni-
versity librarian, James' vision
and leadership will be essential to
our ability to address the changing
nature of information acquisition
and knowledge dissemination,"
Pollack said in communication
with the regents. "He will contrib-
ute to the study and design of infor-
mation access and preservation."
While digitization will continue
to require alarge share ofthe librar-
ies' time and resources, Fitzgerald
said it was too early to tell if any
other changes will come about as a
result of Hilton's appointment.
"I'm sure we'll see (digitization)
continue but where the future may
lead, that will be up to experts
like (Hilton) to lead that way,"
Fitzgerald said. "To make sure that
documents are available for future
generations has always been a
priority and I know it will continue
Hiltonwill succeed Public Policy
prof. Paul Courant, who assumed
the role of dean of libraries and
University librarian in 2007.
Fitzgerald said Courant
stepping down from the position
was not an abnormality at the
University, as a five-year term was
typical of most director and dean

Field hockey complex
receives funds,
general admission
policy discussed
ManagingNews Editor
DEARBORN - At this month's
meetingofthe University's Board
of Regents, the regents heard
from Business senior Michael
Proppe, president of the Central
Student Government, and
approved multiple construction
and renovation projects and
faculty appointments.
Proppe first addressed the
regents and expressed his disap-
pointment with the newly intro-
duced general admission policy
for football seating in the fall.
He said many students would
never be able to fulfill their
dreams of sitting in the front
row for football games, even
during their senior year when
they would have been able to -
under the previous policy - get
season tickets near the field.
"I wish the first step would
have been to go to the students,"
Proppe said.
CSG has passed a resolution
condemning the policy shift
although CSG will not actively
work to reverse the policy.
Instead CSG will advocate for
student input in future policy
decisions that affect students
Rackham student Nils
Hennes-Stear, a CSG
representative, echoed Proppe's
dissatisfaction with the new
seating policy in a tweet sent out
during the meeting.
"When is failing to consult
those most affected by a decision
ever a good policy?!" Hennes-
Stear tweeted.
During the second order of
business, 147 professors from the
University's Ann Arbor campus
received tenure. Three of those
professors spoke to the regents
about the research they have
been conducting at the Univer-
The regents then approved
the construction of a new field
hockey stadium and team

center, upgrades to Phyllis Ocker
Field and the installation of
new synthetic turf - as well as
other minor upgrades - on the
baseball and softball fields.
The field hockey complex will
cost $13.5 million and will be
funded entirely from donations
to the University Athletic
Department. It will include a
new grandstand able to seat
1,500 spectators and will have
multiple amenities, including a
new locker room and training
The improvements to the
baseball and softball complex
will include the installation
of synthetic turf and minor
improvements to the grounds,
including upgrades to the fences
and sidewalks. The project
will cost $2.55 million and will
be funded through Athletic
Department resources.
In an interview with Mgoblue.
com, Athletic Director Dave
Brandon said he was excited
about these new projects.
"We are appreciative of the
donor support for both of these
projects," Brandon said. "The
two projects are part of our
department's strategic initia-
tive to build a connected athletic
campus that will unify all 31

the implementation of the new

If you were to ask any of the
No. 10 Michigan women's tennis
players what they would be doing
Saturday morning at 1:30 a.m.,
the answer would. be unanimous:
Instead, the Wolverines were
playing the No. 7 UCLA women's
tennis team in their Sweet 16
matchup - a match that started
around four hours late. And the
delay ultimately proved too much
to overcome, as Michigan fell
4-0 on Friday night and Saturday
The Wolverines started the
highly anticipated match at 11:00
pm central time in Urbana, Ill. and
did not finish until the wee hours
of the morning. After giving up a
tightly contested doubles point,
UCLA (19-5) cruised behind its
strongsingles play.
"It was a very difficult day," said
Michigan coach Ronni Bernstein.
"You have to figure out when to eat
and hit, and we started over four
hours late. I didn't want them sit-
ting around the hotel all day, and
we tried to get them moving, while
making sure they had enough food
in them. It was just unusual cir-
cumstances. It was tough for us,
but for UCLA as well."
For Michigan (10-1 Big Ten, 23-6
overall), winningthe doubles point
has been the key to success. Enter-
ing Friday's dual, the Wolverines

were undefeated when winningthe
point, and just 3-5 without it. The
point becomes even more crucial
when an opposing team boasts a
strong singles lineup - something
that has carried UCLA all season.
The Bruins have five nationally
ranked singles players - two in the
Top 20.
Michigan got down early at
the third spot, putting more pres-
sure on the first and second pairs.
After eventually losing at No. 3,
the Wolverines looked to their top-
pair of sophomore Emina Bektas
and junior Brooke Bolender. The
nation's sixth-ranked duo has been
a force to be reckoned with.
Bektas and Bolender, perhaps
the most aggressive team in the
nation, served and volleyed their
way to a 8-6 victory, evening up
the doubles score and putting the
doubles point in the second match's
Sophomore Sarah Lee and
senior Mimi Nguyen have found
success as an unconventional pair,
with Lee hitting a big ball, while
Nguyen is more of a crafty player.
The duo jumped out to a 5-2 lead,
but went on to give up two breaks.
All tied up at 6-6, with Lee serving,
the pair couldn't close out the game
after going to three deuce points.
Down 7-6, the Michigan pair broke
back, but couldn't hold serve once
again. UCLA served out the match,
giving the-Bruins the highly cov-
eted doubles point.
"We had a good start at num-

Wolverines falter against UCLA in Sweet 16

Freshman Ronit Yurovsky was selected to continue her first season in the NCAA Individual Championships this weekend.

ber two, and I thought the UCLA
was struggling big time," Ber-
nstein said. "When you have a
UCLA team down, you have to
close them out. Getting that dou-
bles point would have been huge
momentum wise and we let it get
away from us. We had chances,
but couldn't do it."
The Wolverines entered singles
play well aware of the singles line-
up the Bruins boasted. But no one
knew better than Bektas, set to
play No. 3 Robin Anderson. Bektas
knew in order to be successful she
would have to exploit Anderson by
strong first serves, and put away
volleys, but against Anderson, it's
much easier said than done.

Anderson's shots were falling,
often times passing Bektas at the
net, ultimately winning, 6-3, 6-4.
"I don't think she made enough
first serves, and that's huge for
her game, especially against a
kid like Robin, who makes good
returns and is quick," Bernstein
said. "Emina needed to have a
better first serve percentage, and
she couldn't do it. She almost had
an easier time breaking, which is
The Wolverines also lost at the
sixth and second spots to give
UCLA the match victory.
Despite the loss, Coach Bern-
stein made it clear that she is proud
of this team and that the future

remains bright.
"It's obviously disappointing
losing in the Sweet 16, but we had
another great season," Bernstein
said. "There is a lot of success to be
seen. We have a great base return-
ing, with three new kids coming
next year. We just have to stay
healthy and improve our doubles.
Overall it was a great year, and we
have to look into the positives of
But for three Wolverines, the
season is not yet over. Bektas and
Bolender earned a 5-8 seed in the
NCAA doubles Championships,
while Bektas and freshman Ronit
Yurovsky earned invites to the
NCAA singles Championships.
